We had a 4 night break at the Connaught hotel end of April. This was our second stay at the hotel and it will not be our last. We cannot fault the service, the food in the restaurant is more than worthy of the 2 rosette rating, all the staff are excellent, the hotel is very comfortable and ideally situated to explore the delights of Dorset.

Room Tip: We have had a superior on both visits and these have proved to be very comfortable

Excellent staff and service, The staff were very helpful, my wife is a wheelchair user. The lift was a little tight for the wheelchair but servicable. Good rooms and comfortable bed is a little compact space wise. Room was a little warm with no air-con so we left the window open.

If you're looking for a warm welcome, to sleep in a comfy bed, eat scrumptious food, all whilst staying in a relaxing atmosphere, then this hotel is the place for you. Pop down the road to the Cliff Lift or saunter down the Zig Zag pathway. All seven miles of Beach is in front of you. the staff on reception will provide a map to ease your way

Stayed at this hotel in early May with my wife. This is obviously a very well run hotel which is immediately apparent by the reaction of the pleasant and helpful staff. We stayed in a superior room (36) which was very clean but a bit on the small side. We ate in the lounge and were very impressed by the quality of the food and value for money. The breakfast was also excellent. The hotel was very well placed for access to the beach and the town centre. Free parking was a bonus although if you arrive late in the evening spaces are at a premium. We didn't use the pool and the gym as the weather was so good. Would certainly recommend this hotel for business and pleasure.

spent the weekend here with a group of friends for a Ladies Weekend. In a word superb, the food the service and the facilities were second to none. Nothing was too much trouble. Would definitely stay again

Room Tip: They are quick to clean your room so if want a lie in use the 'do not disturb'
